Contemplative dance - authors of the article Oleg Frolov and Maria Grudskaya Contact Improvisation and Performance Center

20. 08.2017
Oleg Frolov and Maria Grudskaya (translation)

The contemplative dance practice was developed by Barbara Dilley, who has been practicing and studying meditation in the Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche tradition for over 30 years. Barbara also danced and collaborated with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company (1963–68) and Grand Union (1969–76), a dance theater that developed the art of improvisation. Since 1974 Dilly has taught at Naropa University in Boldory, Colorado, USA. There she developed the Dance/Movement Studies Program and headed it (1985–93).
1) Meditation - statics (observation of the breath or whatever this word means to you).
2) Warming up - we do everything we need to do in order to fully come to this place.
3) Open space: the time when we can move or contemplate in stillness. This is the main part of the CDP. Thanks to meditation, space is filled with attention, thanks to dance - movement. nine0005 4) Meditation
5) Sharing - people share what happened and is happening. Sometimes silently)))

Due to the simple structure, a space is formed in which miracles happen: such as the miracle of an individual flow of improvisation or the miracle when all the participants of the jam really connect and dance together.
If you can dance, this is a great opportunity to practice your dance.
If you don't know how to dance - you are in the most favorable conditions - because. You don't have to discard anything))

An excerpt from a book by Barbara Dilley translated by @Maria Grudskaya and @Oleg Frolov . Barbara Delay is the creator of the Contemplative Dance practice. It is interesting to know where the roots grow from. A good reminder of simply paying attention to what is:

“Our experience is the soil.
Mindfulness practice is our path.
Self-expression is our fruit.”
- from the teachings of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

My exploration of dance, creativity and spiritual practice is reflected in these words of Buddhist teacher Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. nine0005 Contemplative Dance arose from a dialogue between the practice of meditation, the teachings of Buddhism, and my experience as an American contemporary dancer born in Chicago, Illinois in 1938.
Ever since I began to learn meditation as a practice of mindfulness and clarity of mind, I began to ask myself the question: what would dance be like if body-mind awareness from meditation practice was used in art training programs?

People, their history, culture and land appear in any of their creative expressions. Our life path shapes how we grow and change, how we respond to opportunities and fears. The world around us shapes us. The practice of Contemplative Dance arose from interacting with different people, different places, and different inner experiences. nine0009

The teachings of dharma as presented by Trungpa Rinpoche, a Tibetan meditation master and artist, inspired me to learn the language of the “inner experience” of my dancing life. His instruction in the practice of meditation, and in particular his teaching on dharma in the arts, which began in 1978, was a clear and bright light that illuminated the darkness and confusion of my dance and stage life at the end of the 20th century.
The doctrine of dharma in art says that art is a spiritual journey, a journey of authentic action that can awaken us from our sleepy confusion and be useful to others. nine0009

Creative expression based on awareness and mindfulness can become a personal experience in our lives. It sounds so easy. But, as often happens, we lose the real experience of simple facts due to the many layers that we surround ourselves with.
The teaching of dharma in art invites us to awaken hearts and perceptions and become who we are, including our confusion, and then generously share this with each other with confidence and pleasure.
This requires that we fully accept human nature in ourselves, in everything - in sorrow and in joy - in everything. Once I heard these words, I knew that I wanted to go on this journey, although it could not be easy. nine0009

“Soil, Path, and Fruit” is a classic Buddhist paradigm for exploring the human journey.
In the teaching of dharma in art, "soil" is our experience (direct experience), and that says it all. I soon realized that I used to want to eliminate parts of my experience that I didn't like or felt ashamed of.

“The Way” is attentiveness to what we do, think, say, see, hear – just that. Accept everything you perceive without any prejudice. Expanded awareness begins with this clear and concrete discipline of attention to everything. We learn to be attentive to what we think, observe, feel, want, hate, ignore. Practicing mindfulness reminds us of something we knew but forgot. nine0009

And self-expression is the “fruit”. We naturally and constantly express who we are. I soon noticed that paying attention to my immediate experience came easier when I stopped trying to be someone else. I was asked to wake up and see what is.”

Naropa University

Many of the artists and teachers who attended Naropa University in those early years were looking for techniques and instructions that would give meaning to the crazy world we found ourselves in. I felt camaraderie with the people I met. We were all looking for something. It was the early 70s: the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, mind-expanding substance and the free lifestyle were part of our shared history. nine0009

Founder Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche inspired us to combine our Western education and our life experiences with the teachings and practices of the East and let the sparks fly. This was Naropa's first motto: "The place where East meets West and sparks fly."

We learned to be open in life, to notice our neurotic habits and let them go. Notice and let go. We listened to lectures about the Tibetan view of the nature of the mind, its vastness and limitless potential, about intelligence and intuition, and about our natural deep sources of compassion and empathy. Rinpoche spoke our language, pointing out our confusion and recognizing our strengths. nine0009

Then he invited me to open a dance department in this newly created alternative college. I could not refuse this offer.

Naropa University was the place where I could learn how to be a teacher. I wanted to leave behind what was destroying the spirit of creativity - the neurotic aspects of Western dance art, the attitudes that develop competitiveness, self-doubt and violent body training. I was interested in teaching dance that is inspired by Buddhist psychology and mindfulness. I knew there was something in it. I began to look for something that I could not name. I was inspired by teaching within the context of the spiritual tradition and sacred vision taught by Rinpoche. It was sometimes difficult and filled with not-knowing. The Dharma path offered a holistic living of life. This included everything past, present and even future. nine0009

Trungpa Rinpoche's description of Dharma Art resonated in me like the sound of a great bell:

“When we talk about Dharma art…we don't mean art that illustrates Buddhist symbols or ideas…but rather art that is born in a certain state of mind of the artist. We can call it a meditative state: striving for directness and courage in creative work. .. Our message is simply to appreciate the nature of things as they are, and to express this without any struggle of thoughts and fears. We let go of aggression towards ourselves – that we have to make a special effort to impress people, or towards others – that we have to convey something to them. nine0009

The true art of the Dharma is simply the act of non-aggression.”

Chongyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Many of these ideas excited me – what is the artist's state of mind, what is my state of mind when I dance? How does it feel to be clear and free from doubt and struggle? And where is the aggression in my dance? I aspired to dance from this deep state, free from doubt, open and responsive. I started looking for ways to support the meditative dance. nine0009

In my meditation practice, I began to feel that taming the mind was like a balm for my hot and confused mind. I also found that the work of taming my wild mind was slow and difficult. Habitual behavior, whether it be dancing habits or thinking habits, does not go away quickly. “Non-aggression” in other words is patience. Patience. That's the principle!

I started to ask myself as a performer, what exchange is taking place between me as a dancer and you as a spectator? Is it ego related? With my desire to see how special I am? What is ego? What does it mean to be compassionate? Be generous? When I met Trungpa Rinpoche to talk about the dance program, he asked me to explore what the discipline of learning is. What will it be like to study in a dance program that is based on awareness not only of the body, but also of the mind? nine0009

"Early Research"
In 1980, my first year of Contemplative Dance, I created a program that took a multifaceted approach to dance and mindfulness practice. We did meditation and explored different aspects of dance and creativity. We had a curriculum - there were lectures on the art of dharma and Buddhism, followed by classes on dance technique. We studied anatomy, improvisation, composition and discussed how it all connected in our experience. We have been working with the practice of orioki, a mindful eating ritual adapted from Zen Buddhism, which has helped me cope with an eating disorder, and I hoped it could help others. Trungpa Rinpoche taught us all these different approaches to mindfulness. He brought so many disciplines together - creating this brew of East and West and inviting us to a feast. I wanted to convey that same approach to dance and the creative process. nine0005 When we talked with the students of the first group about the Contemplative Dance, I said that our starting point is surprise. To wonder means to be curious about something, to contemplate, contemplate or meditate. It also means surprise, surprise, shock. What happens if we all get surprised like this together?
I am lonely by nature and wanted to share this journey with others. Meditation is a practice that brings loneliness and being together. And the dance is the same for me. nine0005 Perfect and magnificent dancing in space, day after day - so fleeting. The dance is truly fleeting. He leaves no trace. We don't have a "product" to share. Just a memory of the experience.
What happens when we dance? In early research, we shared these questions and searched for the exact words together. We have experienced such deep enrichment doing this work together. Even when you just enter a room where there is another person, you become different than when you are alone. nine0005 The big question in these years was how "Buddhist" was it to do the Contemplative Dance practice? In America, the role of religion is complex. Often people are defensive about anything that appears to be a structural religion, even if they are attracted to the spiritual component. In Contemplative Dance practice it has been a slow process to find what supports our practice, like whether to use traditional chanting, whether to build a small altar.
As a teacher, it is important for me to support people on their personal spiritual path. People enter spiritual practice through many different doors. When I myself studied with Trungpa Rinpoche, my hesitation and resistance were met with respect. First my mindset changed, and then I was shown how to practice further and deeper. I wanted to offer this openness to others. This is important when we discover the spiritual path ourselves. In all the great wise traditions of the world, there are different types of meditation. How to recognize and respect this diversity and at the same time create a discipline that we can practice together in the same space and time? nine0005 When students asked questions, I tried to hear beyond words. Often they led the way. Students and a classroom were needed to unleash these new ideas. Often I tried something in class and the group remained indifferent. Then I approached the same thing from a different angle, the group filled up and came to life. In this kind of research, the Buddhist concept of "maitri" or "boundless friendliness" towards oneself and others is needed. It took many years to learn how to sustain this process of losing focus and finding a path. Softness is a balm that soothes the heat of struggle. Softness is one of the entrances to the physical sensation of awareness. When we are in a state of softness, presence and wakefulness, there are certain kinesthetic sensations in this. What kind of dance do we create when we accept ourselves completely as sacred? What is the pattern and energy of my thoughts when I dance? How does awareness feel? Can I dance so you can see my heart? nine0009

IV. An overview of the practice of contemplative dance
What kind of dance are we dancing from a meditative state?
This was the question that inspired the practice of contemplative dance.
The instructions for the meditation were deceptively simple - take an upright and relaxed position, begin to follow the breath slowly and when thoughts come, lightly touch them and let go and return to the breath. I observe the constant activity of my thoughts and feelings as they arise, exist and disappear. I practice accepting secret, embarrassing thoughts—boring, stupid miles of nothingness and these fresh, direct images of sanity and grace. nine0005 This Buddhist path honors the experience of confusion and confusion. This leads our thinking and feeling to purity and kindness. In particular, the teachings of the Dharma Art make art and creativity through inner discoveries of goodness and beauty. Because my work as an artist is about the dancing mind-body, I keep finding endless questions as I sit on a cushion or walk slowly around the room during my meditation walk.
Movement and immobility, the posture of my body under the influence of gravity - this is invariable, subtle micro-movements, how my thoughts settle in my body and where - these experiences enter my life and my dance. nine0005 The themes of the dance are the rhythm of patterns of thinking and perception, the energy of patterns of movement from my deeply calm cells to the night constellations and solar winds. In the practice of contemplative dance, there is the idea of ​​combining all these different qualities of awareness from the practice of meditation with everyone's personal dance vocabulary right now, in this moment.

V. Practice
At the beginning of the practice of contemplative dance, We place pillows along the edges of the hall along the walls. Then we sit down, contemplating the empty space. nine0005 Each session includes:
Meditation. In the beginning, someone gives instructions regarding posture, breathing, and thought work. Then we sit down together for about 30 minutes. The meditation bell is used to mark the transition from one phase to another.
The practice of personal awareness. It is based on what dancers call a personal warm-up. This is the time and place to bring the practice of meditation into moving awareness - to every body, in stillness, in motion, on this day, with these energy patterns in this room. This is a solitary practice, but together. The long list of intentions in this plan is addressed to all the different layers that we can explore in body awareness. nine0005 Open space. This is the most extensive part of the session. We return to our pillows for a short meditation, then we go into the open space where we meet with the present moment, whatever it may be. We always enter and exit space with a little standing bow. This means that we are practicing and not performing. (This kind of bow is common in many martial art traditions.) In "open space" we bring everything we have explored so far into a larger context. This is a time for greater courage - an encounter with the unknown. This is improvisation - free dance. Sometimes we are the only entrance to space, and then everyone else looks at us. Sometimes others move too and may or may not want to join. Free space is free from any rules except for two: take full responsibility for yourself and do no harm. Sometimes an open space remains empty for a while. Rise, bow and entrance can take time. Waiting for impulses, working with our fears are all part of the magical space that we create together. We learn how to be direct and aware of our subconscious. When we close the open space we sit down together again and then the final bell sounds. nine0005 Discussion time. We come together in a circle after the sound of the bell and share our observations of the session or ask any questions. Sometimes there is a lot to say, sometimes not much. Often the standing group may also talk in a circle and before the start.
This form can be an automatic learning process. Each of us takes responsibility for how our learning and understanding unpacks. Every moment, every gesture has the potential to awaken us to wholeness and friendliness, to be fully human and to dance the real dance of now. It is a process of seeing and feeling deeply from within our kinesthetic experience. Being curious is the most essential skill. We trust what is happening - sometimes we are awake and inspired, sometimes we are lost in memories and dreams. When mindfulness and intention to be present is practiced in this way, I feel the vibration in the hall. Space becomes tangible with our focus and the pulse of our attention and interest. nine0005 In practice, we consciously return to the present moment again and again, with accuracy and gentleness. Past and future are powerful forces. They are constantly inviting us away from what is happening now. It's easy to be somewhere else and lose the present moment. When we come back from what we hope for or what we fear it allows the energy to flow, but this process takes time and is repeated. This is one of the meanings of practice. This kind of inner work is a challenge. It's not comfortable. This requires a certain effort, which must be slow and gentle. There must be an ability to endure ignorance and uncertainty. Then all of a sudden we do a "return" when we walk around the room or gently raise our hand and we feel the moment. We kinesthetically feel the embodiment of our state - the radiance, softness, sadness of who we are. Our dance becomes an authentic, delightful expression of being a real person. nine0009

Dancing as a sport: choosing the right direction

October 31, 2016 Health

If you're tired of the treadmill or the monotonous fitness routine, then it's time to go dancing. Lifehacker will tell you about the advantages of different dance styles and help you choose the right one for you.

Why you should dance

  • Regular dancing will make your body slimmer. During training, from 200 to 800 kcal are burned per hour - no worse than when doing fitness. nine0117
  • You can strengthen the respiratory organs and the heart, increase the endurance of the body, cleanse the blood vessels of cholesterol.
  • Beautiful posture and gait - something that you can be proud of after regular exercise. Dancing will help you learn how to hold your back correctly.
  • You will develop excellent coordination, responsiveness and flexibility of the body.
  • Become sociable and self-confident.
  • Learn not to be ashamed of your own body and move beautifully to the music.
  • You will have the opportunity to express yourself. In dance, a person is completely liberated, which contributes to psycho-emotional unloading.
  • You are in a great mood. After a gym or fitness training, many people feel tired, and after dancing, on the contrary, a surge of strength and vigor.

Which direction to choose


Hip-hop is a cheerful, perky and very energy-intensive youth dance direction. You will be able to express your emotions, feelings or protest, to be liberated thanks to the movements that the body itself suggests. This is drive and adrenaline, the spirit of competition and leadership. Rules and restrictions are blurred here, but at the same time, a bright, clear style is felt. nine0009

This direction is characterized by downward-facing movements, relaxed half-bent knees and a low body position. High jumps are replaced by sliding on the floor, there is a quick and unexpected transition from undulating and slow movements to sharp and clear ones. The dancer should appear completely relaxed, and the dance should be cheeky.

Who suits

Anyone who is young or feels young, confident and bold. Hip-hop can be a useful hobby for your child. For children and adolescents, it will help strengthen the musculoskeletal system, correct slight stoop and form a proportional figure. Moreover, this dance direction brings up strong-willed qualities and determination, helps to show individuality. nine0009

According to the study, hip-hop is the most beneficial dance direction for a child: 57% of the duration of a workout a person is in motion. Scientists recognized flamenco as the least active: in this case, the children were mobile only 14% of the time.

  • The main distinguishing feature: hip-hop is not danced to the rhythm of the melody, but to the beat, which must be recognized and clearly captured in the musical composition.
  • This is not just a dance, but a way of self-expression and a way of life. Hip-hop fans often wear clothes that emphasize their freedom: wide leg pants, sneakers, baseball caps, hooded sweatshirts. nine0117
  • Hip-hop is always open to experimentation and improvisation. An important role in this direction is played by character, namely, confidence, self-affirmation, a certain stubbornness and perseverance. This type of dance will help you become more daring, psychologically liberated and open in communication.
  • This dance perfectly works out the muscles of the legs, arms and shoulder girdle, improves fine motor skills.

Hip-hop can be considered a set of anaerobic exercises, so the contraindications are standard, as for regular workouts. People who have problems with their knee joints should be especially careful with such activities, as they have a large load. nine0009

Strip plastic

Training combines aerobic exercise with elements of a seductive dance. Each lesson includes a warm-up, including stretching, and learning the dance sequences. The muscles of the legs and arms, hips and buttocks, abdomen, back and chest receive an excellent load.

Beginners will have to master the basic elements: waves with the body and arms, circular movements of the hips and chest, arches in the back while standing, sitting and lying on the floor. As you progress, the training includes complicated dance combinations with elements of acrobatics (splits, flips, racks). nine0009

Suitable for

This type of dance is designed for all girls and women, regardless of their physical form, appearance and age. If you not only strive for a beautiful figure and graceful walk, but also want to learn how to love yourself, attract and seduce the opposite sex, then strip plastic is ideal for you.

  • Strip-plastic will help to overcome complexes more easily, give you the opportunity to see your body and its advantages in a new way, as well as correct or hide imperfections. After regular exercise, you will not only look better, but also feel more confident and attractive. nine0117
  • When teaching this style, much attention is paid to posture and stretching, without which it is impossible to perform high-quality dance elements.
  • The program also includes a fashion show. It will take a few weeks, and you will begin to move smoothly and uninhibited, and the gait will become easy.
  • Another advantage is that many of the movements are done with arch in the lower back. Usually these muscles are poorly developed due to a sedentary lifestyle. This type of dance will be an excellent prevention of diseases such as scoliosis and osteochondrosis. nine0117
  • During this training, you transform, you will be able to reveal your sensuality and tell about secret desires, try on different roles - from a modest housewife to a vamp. You will master the art of attracting men and learn how to arouse their interest.

Diseases of the respiratory system, heart, blood vessels and joints can become an obstacle to exercise. With osteochondrosis, there is a limitation: you can not twist strongly in the spine. At the same time, strengthening the muscles of the back and abs, stretching the muscles of the hips, shoulder girdle and pelvis will help to significantly alleviate the manifestations of the disease. nine0009

Belly Dancing

idance-nyc. com

This is one of the sexiest trends that helps to prolong a woman's youth and attractiveness. Mandatory components of oriental dances are strikes (sharp movements of the hips) and vibration in combination with smooth waves, circles, eights. Movement coordination is very important. The dance pattern should look holistic, capturing all the attention of the viewer.

Who suits

Ideal for mature women. Unlike jogging or aerobics, belly dancing is a gentle form of physical activity. This means that you can perform movements without putting too much stress on your knees, shins and feet. nine0009

  • You can start mastering the eastern direction even in poor physical shape: belly dance will independently prepare your body for the necessary loads.
  • This activity helps shape the feminine figure. Since the movements of the hips in this dance are quite complex in terms of coordination, those muscles that are difficult to use during normal exercises are being worked out. Such physical activity contributes to a healthy pregnancy and facilitates childbirth. nine0117
  • After 2-3 months of belly dancing, women feel better in case of gynecological diseases. Blood circulation improves, especially in the pelvic organs, inflammation of the appendages disappears, menstrual pains are forgotten.
  • Being engaged only in oriental dances, it is impossible to create a perfect figure, since this is a fairly uniform load. Not all muscle groups are involved here, for example, the back of the thigh, the gluteal muscle, and triceps practically do not work.

Classes are not recommended for gynecological exacerbations, as well as cardiovascular diseases and problems with the spine.

Latin American dances (salsa, bachata, cha-cha-cha, mamba, rumba)

Latin American dances are known for their fiery, impulsive and positive. Classes consist of three parts:

  • Warm-up - semi-circular rotation of the head, hips, circular movements of the shoulders and the like.
  • The main part is learning movements and their repetition.
  • Cooldown - usually static stretching exercises and dance moves at a slow pace.
Suitable for

This type of training is ideal for energetic and emotional people. It embodies the incendiary rhythm and clarity of movement. Latin American dances are also a great way to warm up relationships in a couple or make new acquaintances.

  • The main feature of such dances is the constant work of the hip muscles with a fixed position of the back and a springy step. Therefore, the main load falls on the muscles of the shoulders, lower back and legs. Also, this type of dance helps to improve the heart rate.
  • One of the important features is that you will not even notice the load on the body as a whole. The maximum that you will feel is a slight pleasant fatigue. This is due to the proportionality of the load on the whole body.
  • Actively engaging in Latin American dancing, you can not only lose weight, but also pump up your hips, if you have a tendency to do so. nine0117

In the presence of cardiovascular diseases and problems with the musculoskeletal system, such dances are contraindicated.



Zumba is one of the most popular weight loss workouts. It has been distributed in over 180 countries.

Contempo is a combination of dance techniques from Western (classical dance, modern jazz) and Eastern (qigong, taijiquan, yoga) arts of movement.

Basic exercises are built by analogy with classical and modern ones: from simple to more complex. The lesson includes exercises in the stalls (work on the floor), relaxation techniques, as well as stretching.

Suitable for

Amateur and professional dancers. Height, weight, complexion of a person are not important here. Contempo is suitable for you if you want to not only keep a good shape, move beautifully, but also know yourself. nine0009

  • Globally, contempo differs from other dance styles by its inward orientation, interest in the quality of the moving body, its relationship with space, time, partner. The dancer accumulates energy, thoughts, emotions inside himself, and then gives them to the viewer.
  • The peculiarity of the dance also lies in the alternation of muscle tension and relaxation, falling and lifting, sudden stops (often on straight legs), balancing.
  • Breathing during the contempo should be measured, as if it continues to move. Martial arts brought this requirement to the dance. nine0117
  • Contempo gravitates more towards the floor, while emphasizing the ease and expressiveness of movements. Usually danced barefoot.

Standard restrictions for physical activities. Moreover, this type of dance is quite difficult, exhausting, and you need to be in excellent psychological shape for training. Long stretches, practicing jumps can exhaust a person with a fine mental organization and lead him into a state of depression.

Celtic dances

This is a rather complex set of movements, during which you need to keep the whole body in tension. Training is often exhausting, with a fairly large load. Before starting, a 15-minute warm-up is necessary to warm up the main muscle groups, after which the basic elements of the dance begin to be worked out. For the performance of this style, not only the movements of the dancer are important, but also their appearance, especially shoes. The most famous type of Celtic dance that everyone knows about is the step. nine0009

Suitable for

Patient people who are attracted to the theme of social dancing. Complex combinations are inherent in this style, the elements of which will have to be learned not only in the classroom, but also at home (perhaps even mentally).

  • You have to get used to a rather unusual position. The dance is performed on half-toes (the dancer raises his heels and stands on his toes), the upper body is motionless, the arms are always lowered. The basic rule is fast footwork. nine0117
  • This is a group dance, therefore, on the one hand, you will have to give up any liberties, on the other hand, you will have to develop a sense of partnership when you feel yourself one with other people. Psychologists say that such training is especially useful for those who have difficulty joining the team or are afraid of communication.
  • Music has a clear rhythm and requires the same exact steps. It is important to hit both the note and the foot.
  • Another curious feature is that it is better not to practice any other dances before starting training. Classical choreographic training often gets in the way. For example, in ballet, the feet and hips are strongly turned to the sides. Here, on the contrary, the legs are always crossed. And forget about the hands. nine0117
  • The system of Celtic dances is extremely interesting because it heals the spine without missing a single section, just like a real doctor. The habit of keeping your back straight will form after a few weeks of regular practice.
  • Constant training will form the ideal calf muscles. Although any kind of dance has a positive effect on the muscles of the legs, the Celtic ones receive a well-deserved gold medal.
  • This type of activity does not give any load on the hands, so if necessary (or if desired) you need to work out this zone separately. nine0117

Large shock loads (jumps) do not allow those who have problems with the heart, blood vessels, spine and joints to practice Celtic dances. Progressive varicose veins are also a contraindication.
